Extra-curricular activities at Meridian
At Meridian we are putting together a package of before and after school extra-curricular clubs with the aim of offering both traditional and non-traditional activities. The clubs are either run by our school staff or by external providers. Feedback from our parent surveys has indicated that you would appreciate a wider selection of extra-curricular clubs. This letter contains information about the range of opportunities we are looking to provide over the coming year.
